Mixed Pickles.

Inspired by historical documents from Jewish refugee camps, this page-spread and activity encourages a therapeutic writing exercise aimed at vulnerable families. Born out of a collaboration between Knowledge Quarter and The Wiener Holocaust Library, the project was included as part of Playground; an annual zine in which I also contributed to the design and manufacture.

With thanks to Sam Oates, Barbara Warnock, Yukari Ono and Abbie Vickress.
